Digital Transformation Takes Hold In Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- To help Philadelphia area companies accelerate their digital transformations, DocuSign, the global eSignature and Digital Transaction Management (DTM) leader, will host Momentum X on Thursday, September 29 at The Hub City View at 30 South 17th Street. The complimentary half day event will feature top thought leaders sharing their insights and experiences on going digital to accelerate speed to results, reduce costs, decrease risk in increased security and compliance, and delight their customers. Individuals may register at https://momentum.docusign.com/en.
The event underscores the shift from manual, paper-based processes to faster, easier, more convenient and secure digital business among organizations of every size and industry. Today, the vast majority of C-level executives have digital transformation among their top three strategic objectives. For many, it's the top priority as going digital positively impacts nearly every area where businesses are measured, including revenues, efficiency, costs, security, compliance, customer experience, and sustainability.
"We expect that the most successful businesses will be fully digital by the end of the decade – a trend we're seeing mirrored here in Philadelphia," said Neil Hudspith, president of worldwide field operations at DocuSign. "Across the DocuSign Global Trust Network, we're finding organizations of all sizes are advancing their digital agendas to be the disruptors in their industry, rather than the disrupted. The time has never been better to start or advance a company's digital journey to drive competitive advantage before it's too late."
DocuSign's Momentum X events bring together key learnings, insights and best practices on going paperless from thought leaders and industry luminaries around the world. Attendees will discover the leadership, technology and culture requirements for taking their business fully digital, learning from other digital heroes who've led their industries, companies and departments through transformation.
As a unit of Comcast Cable, Philadelphia-based Comcast Business provides advanced communication solutions to help organizations of all sizes meet their business objectives. They are using technology to help their field sales teams provide a better customer experience, and have deployed DocuSign on iPads to empower sales reps to close deals with customers on the spot so that they can get access to Comcast services as quickly as possible. The move accelerated business growth while delighting customers with the high tech, yet high touch experience.
"The way we onboard new customers is a big part of the overall experience of working with Comcast Business," said Terry Connell, SVP of sales and sales operations, at Comcast. "By adding DocuSign to our process, we're not only giving our sales team a useful tool that increases efficiency but more importantly, we're getting customers up and running even faster so they can focus on their business."

"Moving from manual, paper-based processes to 100% digital with DocuSign has not only accelerated our business, but has created a better experience for our vendor partners while driving critical increased compliance by getting agreements set up right the first time. With the dramatic ROI we've already experienced, we're deploying DocuSign across our business in Sales, Procurement, Legal and HR all around the world.
